Thursday 30th November: STP Seminar – “Commuting Matrices, MacDonald Identities & Supersymmetric Gauge Theory”

Title: Commuting Matrices, MacDonald Identities & Supersymmetric Gauge Theory

Speaker: Giovanni Felder (ETH Zurich)

Abstract: I will introduce the notion of representation homology, following Berest, Khatchatrian and Ramadoss, and discuss some examples, applications and open problems about pairs of commuting matrices, generalizations of Macdonald constant term identitites and the Nekrasov partition function of N=2 supersymmetric gauge theory. The talk is based on joint work with Y. Berest, M. Müller-Lennert, S. Patotski, A. Ramadoss and T. Willwacher.

Time: Thursday 30th November 2017, 2.30pm.

Place: Lecture Room, School of Theoretical Physics, DIAS, 10 Burlington Road, Dublin 4.
